So there were many people there so I told one of the guys I will help him to call names so when it gets to my name then I will give it to another person. But people were giving monies to some of the officers there to get their cards, so my brother went there to tell them not to give money to the officers.

When my brother was speaking a guy came from his back and stabbed him,” Michael Tei Narh, brother of the victim said. He said the victim has been rushed to a hospital for treatment. Meanwhile ,the suspect was immediately arrested by some of the applicants around and has been handed over to the Odumase Police.

The absence of the Commissioner in Charge of the guarantors forms at Suhum New Town Presbyterian Centre created confusion at the registration center as the applicants were turned away and asked to go to a different centre to register.
